TL;DR - Please comment with all the locations you'd like to attend a devMeet, and if you can organise said meet even if you have commented before.

------------

I'm starting this journal over again as it was originally made in Sept 2010 and I for one have moved house since then. So I will only be counting requests made since the start of this year, so please leave a comment with all the places you'd like a meet.  Also please note we do need people to volunteer to be organisers or these cannot take place - you ought to be over 18 to do so.

-------------

The number one thing I see in comments or in questions is when will there be an "InsertPlaceNameHere" Meet.
As you can understand, it is not possible for us to organise a meet somewhere we do not live, we aren't a deviantart.com official meet organising crew moving around the country and hosting meets where ever we like, we're just normal people with money, location, and time restrictions.

So this is a feeler journal to ask everyone who wants a meet in their area to raise their hands and say where they would like a meet.  I will make a list up here with all the locations, and requests for possible organisers, who will also post separate journals for each location once they have decided to host a meet asking how many people would be interested in attending meet at "InsertPlaceNameHere", so you know whether it's worth organising or not.

I know a lot of you are new to the Meet scene, it got a lot more exposure due to the HQ tour, which was huge.  I wouldn't be too disappointed if you don't look likely to have a hoard of deviants in attendance at your meet.  Before you organise a devMeet I would recommend attending one so you get some idea of what they are like.  I attended my first at 17 and organised my first four months after than when I had turned 18.

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them. There is also a section on organising a devMeet I wrote in the Guide to Devmeets

Pssst I moved from Manchester to Bristol. (and am right by the city centre and most DEFINITELY coming to any meets here so y'all should probably note the wheelchair so we can plan accordingly ;P)

Oh, and you can scratch me off the Derby list now, too. Ty. <3
